Got it thanks. Are those the kind that uses the air in the spare tire to power the spray?

Yes however, I replaced the air valve in my wiper switch with a micro-switch and hooked up a electric pump. Worked great,.....for a while. Too much current for the switch. Lasted for about a year.

Plan B will be to replace the wiper switch back to original and use a accumulator tank since my spare tire is rack mounted on the back.

Part number for the reservoir and cap start with a 311 so it's probably out of a Type 3. The tire to reservoir hose starts with a 411 so it's probably out of a type 4.
